This is a Vancouver based designer, Wendy Tsao, and her lovely business! She makes one-off plush toys based on a child’s drawing. I love this, and you should take a look at what she has actually created based on even the most abstract scribbles. I will forevermore scoff at any designer who tells me they can’t do a 3D sculpt or turnaround …
Do you know the twin force of toy nature known as The Beast Brothers? Top toy designers, urban artists - and purveyors of Mexipedia - they have teamed with another powerhouse toy artist, Huck Gee for this unreal, hand painted, golden Azteca 8” custom Dunny series. I’m pretty sure these will sell out in less than an hour, so get on the webstore before 1 pm (EST) on April 20th. Congrats guys! You’ve totally outdone yourselves this time!
Head’s up San Francisco art and party people! TOTT Global - makers of art-inspired puzzles and games - is bringing Art Basel to their home town.
Love these guys - and their products. In fact, you’ll be seeing some Camilla d’Errico x TOTT very soon.
